Here's a snippet of a new piece coming out in a book later this year about about musicians. Art Directed by @DushanMilic . I wanted to try and capture the melancholy mood of the King's last days and found out that it's hard drawing a well-known figure when a bunch of extra weight has been added. Too many fried peanut butter banana sandwiches.

Totally captured the emotion. The texture and colors are spot on.
I have to own one of your pieces one day!
This is amazing!
Thanks @Shed Labs and @Adam Grason ! So you think it looks like him? I couldn't tell anymore. When he aged his face lost so much of its form and his pretty eyes became smaller. It's sometimes hard to capture someone who's face is so well known.
So good, Jacqui. Your use of color is always inspiring. P.S. My wife Melissa will love this. She's the biggest Elvis fan! =)
W o a h .
You're so damn good, you've really captured him in his last days.
You got it! And I want a fried peanut butter banana sandwich for lunch.
Thanks @Kevin Burr, it was nice to work it a more muted moody colour palette for a change. Hope your wife approves! Thanks @Darren Booth @Mitch @Dave Mott @Gregory Grigoriou so glad you guys like it. I've been painting so many children's portraits lately good to know I can still draw a grown up!
Totally captured him. Amazing.
Wow this is really amazing! Visually striking.
@Jacqui Oakley totally! Definitely could tell who it was right away when we saw the thumbnail.
Where have you been all this time? Colorful, loose, spontaneous, fantastic. Great work.
Been so long Jacqui.
Glad to see you posting again.
Awesome stuff as always!
Yeah, Jacqui. This looks insane.
@Emir Ayouni | Growcase| Growcase I've been working on a kids book the last few months and not legally allowed to show anything...but soon! It's kept me busy too so it's nice to get back to regular work and seeing what everyone's been up to. @Shed Labs glad to know he still comes across. Thanks everyone.
My grandmother would probably love this alot. If she could of married Elvis she would.
Excellent piece of work!
Illustration fit for a king. Great job Jacqui.
